Safety Solutions For The Medical Industry

 

Compliant with International Standards.
Measure Patient Leakage Current According to IEC60601-1.

 

During this global pandemic, the need for medical equipment such as ventilators cannot be overstated, and manufacturers all over the world are rushing to meet the demand. As with most electrical equipment, medical devices must also be tested for safety, especially since the devices often come into direct contact with the patient or healthcare worker. IEC 60601-1 Ed. 3 is a widely accepted safety standard for medical electrical equipment.

Part of the standard addresses patient leakage current, i.e., leakage current that flows through a patient connected to an applied part or parts. Here, we outline and introduce Hioki electrical safety testers in the following orders:

Frequently Asked Question

We are manufacturing medical equipment such as ventilators, artificial cardiopulmonary devices and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machines (ECMO). Do you have any instruments that comply with safety standards for leakage current testing (patient leakage current) or insulation withstand voltage testing?

Our Answer

To test the safety of medical equipment such as ventilators, artificial cardiopulmonary devices and ECMO, we recommend the Hioki ST5540 Leak Current HiTester, which complies with the IEC60601-1:(2005) 3rd Standard.

Types Of Leakage Current

The main types of leakage current are as follows:

・ Patient leakage current

・ Ground leakage current (general electrical equipment, medical electrical equipment)

・ Protective conductor current

・ Contact current, external leakage current (general electrical equipment, medical electrical equipment)

・ Patient measurement current (medical electrical equipment)

・ Total patient leakage current (medical electrical equipment)

Types Of Leakage Current Testing

Other Critical Safety Tests

To verify the safety of medical devices, protective continuity testing (or earth continuity testing) is also necessary, as well as withstanding voltage testing.
